1. Actually, as of right now, I kind of like your nicknames for them. 2. Parish in Talossan is "pleiv". Well, L'Oversteier says pleiv is a "congregation (church), parish", so more like a Catholic parish than, say, a Louisiana parish, which is basically just a county (cuntat in Talossan.) These are very small areas. Why not call them districts? (Four words for district come up on L'Oversteier, only two of which, I think, fit our purposes..."distriteu" and "zistritz".) Or, we could call them "quarters", as in the quarter of a town - "cartieir" in Talossan. (Even tho there are six of them. That's quirky, right?) I suppose we don't even have to give "parish" a Talossan name, we could just make up something. I dunno. 3. I don't know about this one. Sort of used to Mazzini and Garibaldi.

Oh! I have a good one. Venice has sestieri (sing. sestiere), meaning "one-sixths divisions" in an analogous way to the term "quarters".
Perhaps we could Talossanize "sestiere" ("sextieir(s)"?); "sixth" is "sexlaiset" or "sextéu". Sir C. M. Siervicül , come to our help!
Oooh.... I really like this idea, Talossanizing an Italian concept.
If we wanted to take that a step further, we could do it with Garibaldi and Mazzini. Evidently, Garibaldi is derived from a Germanic term combining "lance" and "courage." So... " lança" and "curatx" or "tartxast." So Garibaldi could become "Lançacuratix" Mazzini, from "tool or mace maker" could be something like "Veldisprotfraicheir" or "Utulfaçarh."
I'm most likely not getting it right on. But it would offer some options if we wanted to go in that direction.

Eðo Grischun: What stage is the F-F merger at?

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: The F-F merger is now at the last hurdle: separate referendums in both provinces, both of which must pass for it to be enacted.

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Assuming the King doesn't block assent to 57RZ14, I intend to put it to a mid-term referendum; and, assuming the database can handle it, I'd like the F-F referendums handled at the same time.

Ian Plätschisch: So much for "Assuming the King doesn't block assent to 57RZ14"

Ian Plätschisch: If we can get over the 3/4 threshold we can still have a midterm referendum in August or September though

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Someone should check out the old Clarks and tell me whether KR1 ever wielded his veto pen as much as KJ1 (during the brief periods he didn't personally control the Cosa)

Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: It's hard to compare, since there's no way to search for vetoes on the database. Ben vetoed infrequently, usually in spurts (presumably during those times when he wasn't in control enough to just kill bills early). It probably averages out to once a year.

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Further news on the F-F merger: MPF says he'll need a week or two to set up the database to run provincial referendums, but it shouldn't be a problem to do.

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Given that, the royal veto on Still Into This is a blessing in disguise, as we can still hold the two mid-term referendums together.
